Chloë Dowds’ white porcelain tableware is quiet and contemplative. Thrown on the wheel and gently altered, every element of the design has been carefully considered; from the elegant rims and gentle indent on the handles to the finely polished bases. However, when taking a bird’s eye view of her mugs, jugs and containers, the mood changes and we encounter liquid-like glazes in pastel shades of blue, green, yellow and pink. In juxtaposing the understated with a glossy colour palette, Chloë Dowds is playing with the idea of interior and exterior, of looking inside to discover something new and fresh.”Frances McDonald, Irish Arts Review Winter 2018
